Watershed Map Showing Land Use
The map below shows the Lake Washington/Cedar/Sammamish Watershed, also known as Water Resource Inventory Area (WRIA) 8.
Each watershed in Puget Sound has its own populations of salmon and its own particular salmon habitat problems. For that reason, salmon habitat planning efforts are organized by watershed or Water Resource Inventory Area.
The map shows current land uses and dominant vegetation types in King County watersheds. Use the map legend at right to identify what land use the colors on the map refer to.
The Lake Washington/Cedar/Sammamish Watershed also is divided into subwatersheds to help us understand and solve salmon habitat problems. Click on any section of the map to find out what is being done for salmon habitat conservation where you live!
